    Ordered whilst downloading Lion on launch afternoon here in the UK, I've just checked and the estimated delivery date is 29th July.
    Anyone have anything different? Or am I just being hopeful?

    .... patience comes to those who wait!

    Ordered the same time as you and mine's showing delivery the 29th July as well. Status of "Not Shipped Yet" on Apple's website. :(

    For London based would be buyers, the Regent street store was well stocked with both i5 and i7's... It seemed that every second customer or more was after an Air this afternoon....:D

    On launch day the Southampton store recommended an online order as they didn't know when and what they were getting.
    Could try PCWorld in Poole?

    Ordered in the launch hour and have shipping confirmation and yet delivery is not until 5th August, but it has to come in through UK before Ireland.

    I ordered mine on Thursday and confirm the payment on Friday.
    My Shipping date is 28/7

    I just added a DVI convertor and USB Ethernet and the shipping changed to 3 working days. :(

    did they have the i7/256G 11" in the stores?

    I've got one on those on order eta 29th.

    I'll be mighty hacked off if they have the 256G version in the shops, given they said it was online order only!

    Update

    Had an email today.

    We are pleased to inform you that your order has shipped.

    Please see the details of the shipment below.

    We expect your order to be delivered to your shipping address on or before 28/07/2011.


    So there is hope for the impatient!

    (Coincidentally the the 28th is the same as my wife's due date for our baby! Like I'm really going to get time to pay with my new toy?)

    I tried to order...

    ... a 13" MBA i7 on Friday, July 22nd via Phone from the Apple educational store.

    They quoted me a delivery date of August 8th, which is too late as I am travelling on the 6th.

    I ended up giong for the 13" MBA i5, which is fine for my needs (e-mail, web browing, pictures, Excel, word processing), but I would have preferred the i7 as I like to be as future-proofed as possible; the i5 is supposed to be with me by the 28th, although I have yet to get a confirmation from them that it has indeed shipped.

    However, given the suggested delivery times, I am happy to take the i5 and spend the difference on Office 2011 [I need Excel and 2004 stopped working :-(].

    If the local Apple Store has i7s in stock, the guy on the phone at the education store said that I could exchange in-store and pay the difference, which is what I am tempted to do.

    Mine said that, then on Saturday morning it shipped and updated the status to 1st August 2011. It's now slipped back by a day to 2nd August :eek:

    Just received my second email saying my "order is in transit". The first email told me my order had been shipped.

    Anyone know the difference between the two?

    I got same tracking info

    And yet my delivery date has shifted from 5th August to 6th August (which is a Saturday and we don't get deliveries on weekends so it would be the 8th).... So depressing :( ;)
